Need help deciphering PSA-free/PSA-total/FPSA lab results
Hey Guys. I'm In Need Of A Bit Of Assistance And Any And All Information Will Be Greatly Appreciated. I'm 30 Years Old And Recently Did Some Blood Tests For PSA-Total And PSA-Free Values After An Appointment With A Urologist Following Mild Prostate Pain. My Results Are As Follows :
FPSA = 0,432 (Should Be >1 Per "Normal" Values, Which Means That This Is Lower Than It's Supposed To Be)
PSA-Total = 1,25 (Should Be <1,4 Per "Normal" Values, So This One's Good I Guess)
Free-PSA = 34,5%
I Guess My Main Question Is..Do I Have Any Cause For Concern With Such Results? I'll Have Another Doctor's Appointment Early Next Week, So I Will Hear A Professional Opinion Soon. Would Very Much Appreciate Input On It From People Who Have Some Experience With All This, So I Don't Freak Out In The Meantime Though...Many Thanks In Advance.
